Carl Möller/Moeller (1837-1862)
Carl Möller/Moeller. (1837-1862). Civil War. Company H [German]. Enlistment: 25 September 1861.The Wisconsin Ninth Regiment consisting of 884 men was ordered to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. They took the train through Chicago to Quincy. Disembarking they crossed the Mississippi River on the ice and continued on; soon, crossing the frozen Missouri river they reached Leavenworth. The regiment left Leavenworth on the 2 May 1861 for a march to Fort Scott and then south. While in camp forage and reconnoitering parties were common. During this time Company H rousted two rebel camps and engaged the enemy at Cowskin Prairie in Indian Territory. For many the climate proved fatal. Because of the intolerable heat, the sick list grew. Supplies dwindled; rations were cut. A Council of War was called and the company commander was court marshaled and arrested. A return march began on 19 July with the regiment finally reaching Fort Scott on the 11th of August. On 17 August Carl died at Fort Scott.
